Special event

I attended a free event called, “Make America Pray Again,” hosted by the Social Conservatives of Pennsylvania. Our country has been under attack from  external issues like terrorism, police and school shootings, a drug epidemic, the deterioration of the family, abortion etc. America has ...

Angry feelings

Anger is an ordinary emotion. When we hear the phrase, “Don’t call down the wrath of God,” we realize that yes, God does get angry at any one of us when we turn away from him. He knows why we have done so. If any one continues disregarding God and has that determination to life defiantly ...

Soon it will end

To God be the glory that 44 years of abortion on demand will soon end. With the election of pro-life president Donald Trump, we believe he will do all in his power to overturn Roe v. Wade, as well as cut off all funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills, which were reclassified by ...

Listen to us

President Donald J. Trump will not have a disastrous effect on our country. He will not crush our spirits, ruin our future, or divide our communities. We do not say this because he is a good man, with strong morals. He is not. We do not say this because he has surrounded himself with ...

Worthy march

I read and heard there was going to be a protest march by women after the inauguration of Donald Trump. I would like to apologize to this very powerful grassroots organization. I should have gone and supported your march. After watching from home what was happening I feel hopeful and energized ...

Our ‘feel good’ society

After eight years of competence in the White House, America has had enough. The country has suffered through poor people being insured. The work force has suffered through 96 straight months of job growth. It was a terrible slap at bush when President Obama’s intelligence services hunted ...

Trump

I voted for Donald Trump because I thought he was the lesser of two evils, but he’s like all politicians, he lies to cover up other lies. Trump says they saved all these jobs by keeping the air conditioner company, General Motors division and Chevrolet in this country instead of moving them ...

Seed advice

I am writing to you concerning a TV show I saw  Jan. 14. There is a national forest in Oregon where a lot of pine trees are dying from disease and climate change. The forestry service is collecting pine cones to get the seed from them to replant trees. The seeds are taken to a place to be ...

Wrong direction

I am truly committed to the belief that all Americans should be told the truth. We as Americans believe that in a free society, it is the job of the press to be the watchman of our government. It then falls upon the people, being fully informed, to decide what actions they must take to preserve ...

Scare tactics

Mr. Carlucci's scare tactics completely ignore the basis of the property tax bill - fairness. When are we going to quit resting the responsibility of school taxes on the home owner alone? Everyone would share in the responsibility with this bill. Sales tax would go from 6 cents on the dollar ...

Evolution questions

According to your article on the age of the moon, the moon is 4.51 billion years old. Uranium-lead dating or radiometric dating, as it is also known, is an unscientific measuring method. Evolutionary scientists (evolution is a religion, not a science) are only guessing at the age of the moon ...

Regarding march

Participating in the Women's March on Washington recently was an honor for my wife and me. We have been close to despair from the vitriolic presidential campaign and the direction in which the United States seems to be heading. Being among several hundred thousand people who are at least as ...

What polling shows

The media creates news! At least this what we are being led to believe in a recent letter and it was demonstrated by referencing a Gallop poll showing that Americans think there is more people from the LGBT community then there actually is. Nowhere in the analysis of that poll was there a ...

Seeking the truth

Who says that the average temps we are experiencing now are the most ideal for the earth's existence? The big scare is Co2 "Greenhouse gases!" Think about it. Plants take in carbon dioxide and expel oxygen. We breath oxygen and expel Co2! Perhaps more Co2 and not less is better for this planet ...

‘Neighborhood cupboard’

The Hallorans were our next door neighbors on the 700 block of West Third ST. Mrs. Halloran didn't drive and could be seen frequently pulling her son Mickey's American Flyer red wagon. She and the wagon were headed to the Weis Market at the corner of Walnut and West Third Streets. I often ...

Don’t make it worse

Heroin addiction is a major problem, I agree. Your ongoing articles on the heroin epidemic make it sound like everyone will become addicted to prescription painkillers and end up hooked on heroin. I tried to find statistics on the number of people who use opiates who do not become addicted to ...

Obama is no bigot

In a recent article, Attorney Clifford Rieders argues that President Obama has practiced exactly the same kind of bigotry against Israelis, Prime Minister Netanyahu, and especially Jewish conservatives, to which African Americans have been exposed here in the U.S. To lay the foundation for this ...

About the lies

In response to Richard Tobin's letter, “Proving accusations”, people are either to be ill-informed, ill-read, or just ignoring the facts, which I believe is the later. Liberals are great for that. When Hillary Clinton was asked in an interview if she ever lied to the American people, her ...

Changing direction

Looking at the Sunday edition of the Sun-Gazette, it spoke of the changing directions of city streets. The city cited the traffic congestion, delivery trucks causing problems, and the buses  having problems driving. I have been living in Williamsport for 64 years and have not seen ...

The fools

Sometimes a majority just means all of the fools are on the same side! And so it is with the fools that advocate the religion of man made climate change! I say religion, because true science encourages skeptics and deniers. True science promotes those to ask questions, and to never stop ...
